Report: Five-star cornerback has been missing from Alabama practice


UPDATES: Touchdown Alabama's Stephen M. Smith is reporting that Kendall Sheffield is actually transferring out of Alabama. The Texas native was ranked the No. 4 CB and No. 20 player in the 2015 class by 247Sports' Composite Rankings. He was entering his redshirt freshman season.
